    Question Energy Efficient Athlon AM2

    Hi Scan,

    Will you be getting more of these in stock ? You currently just have the 4200+ OEM....Komplett have the full compliment.

    Would like to order an energy efficient X2 3800+ today if poss from you

    I'd be interested too. How do these compare to the Core 2 Duos though?
    An Atlantean Triumvirate, Ghosts of the Past, The Centre Cannot Hold
    The Pillars of Britain, Foundations of the Reich, Cracks in the Pillars.

    My books are available here for Amazon Kindle. Feedback always welcome!

    and lower TDP so perhaps squeeze a bit more out of an overclock. they dont run that hot though anyway so its doubtful

    My guess is they'd be better in SFF systems ... i'll probably get one when I get my AM2 box

    According to Purchasing we should be getting all the range in, it's just a case of stock becoming available.

    What they are doing at the moment is creating the stock codes and webinfo once we get a confirmed order with our suppliers.

    nope none yet.

    At the moment with the HUGE price drops AMD did the demand for their processors has risen to astronomical proportions. As such, we are just awaiting more information from the suppliers and as they have very very low stocks of these they are as usual taking a little longer than normal to fliter through the retail supply channel.

    Anyway - my cold beers awaits

    I hope that explains the situation at the present time.

    Gutted
    Ordered myself an X2 4200+ Energy Efficient OEM CPU (code prefix on chip should be ADOxxxxx) from Scan (£140). Delivery arrived today and what turns up - a non-Energy Efficient *retail* X2 4200+ (£124) ! What's even more disturbing is the Scan sticky label on the retail box says it *is* an Energy Efficient chip......yet the chip they sent me is an 'ADAxxx' coded one, which are bog-standard

    Worryingly, Scan's website now show no Energy Efficient AM2s at all ! Looks like I'll be getting a refund and buying from Komplett instead on this occasion.

    Thanks Funkstar....looks like Scan have mistakenly marked a load of normal X2 4200+s as the Energy Efficient variety. I'll contact them at 9am and get this returned/refunded and I'll order one from Komplett instead.

    Cheers

    Please speak to returns on this. It is quite possible that we may have been shipped a mixed batch from the supplier.

    I've spoken to returns now and asked for a full refund, which they were fine with. Just waiting for the email now with all the info in........never done a return before.
